Effective Employee Communication Tools  

November 15th, 2016

Employee-employer communication is crucial if you want to have an effective business. There are a lot of different ways in which you can stay connected to your employees; we’ve highlighted some of our favorite tools below:

Use a Project Management Tool.

Digital project management tools like Trello, Asana, or Basecamp are a great way to communicate effectively with your employees. These tools allow you to let your employees know when key deliverables are due, so there’s no confusion. Your employees can also assign tasks to each other, so there’s double coverage on all the tasks at hand.

Use a Chat Tool.

People don’t always read e-mails because they can be cumbersome and take too long to read. This is why using a Chat tool like Skype, HipChat, or Slack is a great idea. You can communicate quickly with any of your employees to give them the pertinent information you would have otherwise forgotten.

Do In-Person Meetings Once a Week.

Even though technology is great for communicating quickly and effectively, you still want to make sure you’re meeting with your employees at least once a week so you can give them a chance to ask you questions. You will find that when one person asks you a question in-person, your other employees will learn from them as well.
